#AttorneysWithHeartWe are #AttorneysWithHeart and as such care for those affected by road accidents.
Goukam HealthWe have chosen as our beneficiary, Goukam Health, a community programme that facilitates the reintegration of children and adults with disabilities into their respective societies. The creation of the programme is aimed at providing for survivors of road accidents who had sustained acquired brain injuries and were medically stable. The primary health care system in South Africa no longer provides for the rehabilitation of brain-injured persons and they are returned to their families without support.
Their workshop model affords the accident survivor the opportunity for inclusion into a day programme, skills training, behaviour modification, family education and social re-integration.
- To teach socially appropriate behaviour
- To facilitate and increase self-awareness
- To teach an appropriate skill which may be transferred back to the community of origin
- Reintegration of children and adults with disabilities into their respective societies.
